“I had always heard that field work or track work or other max effort sprints should always come before heavy lifting. But a lot of the time here sprint DWODs are programmed for after”
Bulldozer2020 (aka Chris) asks:
“How bout a recipe section on the site where maybe everyone can share some power meal ideas? And are there going to be any new T shirts being made with the ‘Power Athlete’ skull and barbells logo on it? That would be pretty rad. Itchin to get some new gear.”
Kevin Daley asks:
Can you guys discuss sleep? I’ve seen the topic on the CFFB board intermittently and think it was partially covered in a TTMJ article. The more sleep the better to an extent but could you provide any input, observations or personal experience with too much/too little/screwed up sleep schedules? Mine is a mess so I get what I can when I can.
